One-Liner Wednesday

I like this quote, along with a whole bunch of Mark Manson’s writing. He irritates me sometimes, but that’s to be expected: he began his career as a “relationship coach,” i.e., helping guys get laid. His overarching theme of pay more attention to the things you actually value and less to those you don’t however is top shelf.

As for me, when I think about what I’ve truly been willing to struggle for the list is short: my children. The end. I haven’t been willing to struggle much for anything else, not writing success, not romantic love, not physical fitness. Only my children’s well-being. That’s all.
